No matter how hard we try, grease stains are practically unavoidable. Whether it's grease from the garage or cooking grease that found a way to avoid the napkin, these stains seem frighteningly permanent and don't want to go away without a fight. There are several proven methods that make grease stains a thing of the past. So next time your jeans fall prey to grease, fear not, it's a simple fix.
Spray the grease stain with WD-40. Be sure to completely cover the stain. Allow it to saturate for at least 20 minutes. Rub dish soap on top of the WD-40 and then rinse the area well under cool running water. Apply more dish soap and launder as usual.
Make a paste of equal parts water and powdered laundry detergent and rub it into the stain with a soft clean cloth. Launder as usual.
Sprinkle baby powder all over the stain and allow it to sit overnight. In the morning, brush away the baby powder and launder the jeans as usual.
Rub shampoo into the stain before washing the jeans.
Pre-treat the stain by applying Dawn dish soap to it and allowing it to sit for 15 minutes before laundering.
